is installed flush with the bin front it is required to
mount the lift door catch as detailed herebelow.
Page 14
1. Open all the way the lift door in the upright
position then place the door catch on the front
face of the ice maker and tape it in place.
2. Drill two 3 mm holes in correspondance of
the catch mounting holes.
3. Remove the tape and fasten the catch
using the two self-tapping screws supplied.
D.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
See data plate for current requirements to
determine wire size to be used for electrical
connections. All SIMAG icemakers require
a solid earth wire.
All SIMAG ice machines are supplied from
the factory completely pre-wired and require only
electrical power connections to the wire cord
provided at the rear of the unit.
Make sure that the ice machine is connected to
its own circuit and individually fused (see data
plate for fuse size).
The maximum allowable voltage variation should
not exceed -10% and +10% of the data plate
rating. Low voltage can cause faulty functioning
and may be responsible for serious damage to
the overload switch and motor windings.
NOTE. All external wiring should conform to
national, state and local standards and
regulations.
Check voltage on the line and the ice maker’s
data plate before connecting the unit.
E.
WATER SUPPLY AND DRAIN
CONNECTIONS
fitting and a shut-off valve installed in an accessible
position between the water supply line and the
unit.
If water contains a high level of impurities, it is
advisable to consider the installation of an
appropriate water filter or conditioner.
WATER SUPPLY - WATER COOLED MODELS
The water cooled versions of SIMAG Ice
Makers require two separate inlet water supplies,
one for the water making the flaker ice and the
other for the water cooled condenser.
Connect the 3/4" GAS male fitting of the water
inlet, using the flexible hose supplied to the cold
water supply line with regular plumbing fitting and
a shut-off valve installed in an accessible position
between the water supply line and the unit.
WATER DRAIN
The recommended drain tube is a plastic or
flexible hose with 18 mm (3/4") I.D. which runs to
an open trapped and vented drain. When the
drain is a long run, allow 3 cm pitch per meter
(1/4" pitch per foot).
Install a vertical open vent on drain line high point
at the unit drain connection to ensure good
draining.
The ideal drain receptacle is a trapped and vented
floor drain.
WATER DRAIN - WATER COOLED MODELS
Connect the 3/4" GAS male fitting of the condenser
water drain, utilizing a second flexible hose to the
open trapped and vented drain.
This additional drain line must not interconnect to
any other of the units drains.
GENERAL
When choosing the water supply for the ice flaker
consideration should be given to:
a) Length of run
b) Water clarity and purity
c) Adequate water supply pressure
Since water is the most important single ingredient
in producting ice you cannot emphasize too
much the three items listed above.
Low water pressure, below 1 bar may cause
malfunction of the ice maker unit.
Water containing excessive minerals will tend to
produce scale build-up on the interior parts of the
water system while too soft water (with too lo
contents of mineral salts), will produce a very
hard flaker ice.
NOTE. The water supply and the water drain
must be installed to conform with the local
code. In some case a licensed plumber and/
or a plumbing permit is required.
F.
FINAL CHECK LIST
1. Is the unit in a room where ambient
temperatures are within a minimum of 10°C (50°F)
even in winter months?
2. Is there at least a 15 cm (6") clearance
around the unit for proper air circulation?
WATER SUPPLY
3.
Is the unit level? (IMPORTANT)
Connect the 3/4" GAS male of the water inlet
fitting, using the food grade flexible hose supplied
to the cold water supply line with regular plumbing
4. Have all the electrical and plumbing
connections been made, and is the water supply
shut-off valve open?
Page 15
5. Has the voltage been tested and checked
against the data plate rating?
9. Have the bin liner and cabinet been wiped
clean?
6. Has the water supply pressure been
checked to ensure a water pressure of at least 1
bar (14 psi).
10. Has the owner/user been given the User
Manual and been instructed on the importance
of periodic maintenance checks?
7. Have the bolts holding the compressor
down been checked to ensure that the
compressor is snugly fitted onto the mounting
pads?
8. Check all refrigerant lines and conduit lines
to guard against vibrations and possible failure.
11. Has the Manufacturer’s registration card
been filled in properly? Check for correct model
and serial number against the serial plate and
mail the registration card to the factory.
12. Has the owner been given the name and
the phone number of the authorized SIMAG
Service Agency serving him?

start up, observe that flaker ice begins dropping
off the ice spout to fall through the ice chute into
the storage bin.
NOTE. Every time the unit is put under power,
after being kept for sometime in shut-off
conditions (electrically disconnected) the
RED LED will blink for 3 minutes after which
the unit will start up with the immediate
operation of the gear motor assembly and,
after few seconds, of the compressor
(Fig.1).
NOTE. The first ice bits that drop into the ice
storage bin are not so hard as the evaporating
temperature has not yet reached the correct
operating value. It is necessary to allow the
ice - just made - to cure itself and wait for
about ten minutes for the evaporating temperature to reach the correct value so to
make more hard bits of ice.

NOTE. On air cooled models, the condenser
temperature sensor, which is located within
the condenser fins, keeps the head
(condensing) pressure between preset
values.
In the event of condenser clogged - such to
prevent the proper flow of the cooling air - or,
in case the fan motor is out of operation, the
condenser temperature rises and when it
reaches 70° C (160°F) for air cooled version and 60° C (140°F) - for water cooled version the condenser temperature sensor shuts-off
the ice maker with the consequent light-up of
the RED WARNING LIGHT (Fig.3).
NOTE. If, after ten minutes from the
compressor start-up, the evaporating temperature has not dropped down to a value
lower than -1°C (30°F) the evaporating temperature sensor detects such an abnormal
situation and stops consequently the unit
operation.
In this circustance, the 5th warning YELLOW
LED will blink.
The machine will remain in OFF mode for
one hour then it will restart automatically.
In case the unit trips OFF again in alarm for
3 times in 3 hours, the machine SHUTS OFF
DEFINITIVELY.
After having diagnosed and eliminated the
cause of the too hi evaporating temperature
(insufficient refrigerant in the system or
compressor not running) it is necessary to
unplug and plug in again to restart the
machine. The unit, before resuming the
normal operation, will go through the usual
3 minutes STAND-BY period.
The machine will remain in OFF mode for
one hour then it will restart automatically.
In case the unit trips OFF again in alarm for
3 times in 3 hours, the machine SHUTS OFF
DEFINITIVELY.
After having diagnosed the reason of the
temperature rise and removed its cause, it is
necessary to proceed as per the previous
“NOTE” to start up again the operation of the
ice maker.
OPERATION CHECKS UPON THE UNIT

Opening the water supply line shutoff valve to fill
up again the float reservoir, the YELLOW LED
goes off while the RED LED starts blinking.
After 3 minutes the unit resumes its total operation
with the immediate start-up of the gear motor
and, few seconds later, of the compressor.
This will cause a gradual decrease of the water
level in the float reservoir and as soon as the
level gets below the two vertical metal pins, the
flaker stops to operate and the YELLOW warning
LED will glow to signal the shortage of water
(Fig. 4)
F. Check for the correct operation of the
electronic eye (one per each ice chute on model
SPN1205) of the optical ice level control, by closing
the bottom opening of the vertical ice chute.
Wait the built up of the ice into the ice chute till it
cuts the light beam of the sensing "eyes".
This interruption will cause an immediate blinking
of the Bin Full YELLOW LED located on the front
of the P.C. Board and after about 6 seconds
causes the shutoff of the unit with the
simultaneous lighting (steady) of the Same LED
signalling the full bin situation (Fig.5).
NOTE. The water level sensor detects the
presence of water in the float reservoir and
confirms it to the micro processor by
maintaining a low voltage current flow
between the two metal pins using the water
as conductor.
WARNING. The use of de-mineralized
water (water with no salt content) having
an electrical conductivity lower than 30
µS, will cause break with the consequent
CUT-OUT of the flaker and the glowing of
the YELLOW LED of water shortage, even
with water in the reservoir.
Discharge the ice from the ice chute so to resume
the light beam previously interrupted and after
about 6 seconds the flaker will re-start - through
the 3 minutes STAND-BY period - with the
extinguishing of the YELLOW LED.

NOTE. The ICE LEVEL CONTROL
(INFRARED SYSTEM) is independent of the
temperature however, the reliability of its
detection can be affected by external light
radiations or by any sort of dirt and scale
sediment which may deposit directly on the
light source and on the receiver.
To prevent any possible ice maker
malfunction, it is advisable to locate the unit
where it can't be reached by any direct light
beam or light radiation and to follow the
instructions for the periodical cleaning of the
light sensor elements as detailed in the
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING PROCEDURES.
NOTE. In the front of the PC Board is located
a small I/R Trimmer directly connected with
the optical Ice level control. By means of its
screw it is possible to modify the signal
received from the Ice Level control so to
overcame some problem caused by dirt and/
or low power supply.
When adjusted it is very important to check
for its correct operation using ice (NOT
HAND) to break the Infrared Beam. In case
the machine doesn't stop it means that the
new setting is too much powerfull and need to
be reduced always by means of the I/R Trimmer.
M. If previously installed, remove the refrigerant
service gauges and re-fit the unit service panels
previously removed.
N. Instruct the owner/user on the general
operation of the ice machine and about the
cleaning and care it requires.

PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
WATER CIRCUIT
SPN 125-255
ICE SPOUT
The water enter in the machine through the
water inlet fitting which incorporates a strainer located at the rear side of the cabinet - then it
goes to the water reservoir flowing through a
float valve.
The float reservoir is positioned at the side of the
freezing at such an height to be able to maintain
a constant water level. The water flows from the
reservoir into the bottom inlet of the freezer to
sorround the stainless steel auger which is
vertically fitted in the center of the freezer.
In the freezer the incoming water gets chilled into
soft (slush) ice which is moved upward by the
rotating action of the auger. The auger rotates
counter-clockwise within the freezer powered by
a direct drive gear motor and carries the ice
upward along the refrigerated freezer inner walls
and by doing so the ice gets progressively thicker
and harder.
The ice, being costantly lifted up, meet the teeth
of the ice breaker which is fitted on the top end of
the auger, where it gets compacted, cracked and
forced to change from vertical into horizontal
motion to be discharged out, through the ice
spout and chute, into the storage bin.

voltage current flow between them. In case
the water used is very soft (de-mineralized)
or the float reservoir gets empty the current
flow between the sensors become so weak
or is no longer maintained that, as
consequence, the P.C. Board shutoff the
flaker operation with the simultaneous
glowing of the YELLOW LED signalling
“Shortage of water”.

REFRIGERANT CIRCUIT
MSPN 1205
The hot gas refrigerant discharged out
from the compressor reaches the
condenser where, being cooled down,
condenses into liquid.
Flowing into the liquid line it passes
through the drier filter, then it goes all
SUCTION LINE
the way through the capillary tube where
it looses some of its pressure so that its
pressure and temperature are lowered.
Next, the refrigerant enters into the
ACCUMULATOR
evaporator coil wrapped around the
freezer inner tube.
The water being constantly fed at the
interior of the freezer inner tube, exchange heat with the refrigerant circulating
into the evaporator coil, this cause the
refrigerant to boil-off and evaporate,
thereby it changes from liquid into vapor.
The vapor refrigerant then passes
through the suction accumulator and
through the suction line where the
refrigerant exchanges heat with the one
flowing into the capillary tube (warmer)
before being sucked into the compressor
to be recirculated.
The refrigerant head pressure is kept

between two pre-set values (8÷9 bar 110÷125 psig on SPN 125 and 17÷18
bar - 240÷250 psig on SPN 255, SPN405,
SPN 650 and SPN1205) by the condenser

located within the condenser fins - in air
cooled versions.

NOTE. The interruption of the light beam
between the two light sensors is immediately
signalled by the blinking of the BIN FULL
YELLOW LED located on the front of the
P.C. Board.
After about 6" of steady interruption of the
light beam the unit stops and the “Full Bin”
YELLOW LED glows steady.
The six seconds of delay prevent the unit
from stopping for any undue reason like the
momentarily interruption of the light beam
caused by the flakes that slides along the ice
spout before dropping into the bin.
This condenser temperature sensor, when senses
a rising of the condenser temperature beyond
the pre-fixed limit, changes its electrical resistance
and send a low voltage power flow to the MICROPROCESSOR of the P.C. Board which energizes,
through a TRIAC, the Fan Motor in ON-OFF mode.
On the water cooled versions, the refrigerant
head pressure is kept at the constant value of
8.5 bar (120 psig) on SPN 125 and of 17 bar
(240 psig) on SPN 255-405-605 and SPN 1205
by the metered amount of water passing through
the condenser which is regulated by the action of
the Water Regulating Valve that has its capillary

By running the ice maker, i.e. by putting the unit
under power, starts the automatic and continuous
icemaking process which would not stop until the
ice storage bin gets filled-up to the level of the
control “eyes” located on the ice chute. As the ice
level raises to interrupt the light beam running
between the two infrared leds (one or both on
model SPN1205), the unit stops after six seconds,
with the simulteneous glowing of the YELLOW
LED signalling the “Full Bin” situation.

pressure increases, the water regulating valve
opens to increase the flow of cooling water to the
condenser.
The RED LED starts blinking and three
minutes later the flaker unit resume its normal
operating mode. The condenser temperature sensor has a further safety function which
consist in preventing the unit from operating
in Lo-ambient conditions i.e. when the
condenser temperature - equivalent to the
ambient temperature - is lower then 1°C
34°F (Fig.6).
As soon as the ambient temperature rises up
to 5 °C the P.C. Board restarts automatically
the machine on the three minutes starting
time.
NOTE. In case the condenser temperature
probe senses that the condenser temperature has rised to 70°C on air cooled version
- or 60° C on water cooled version - for one of
the following abnormal reasons:
CLOGGED CONDENSER (Air cooled
version)
INSUFFICIENT FLOW OF COOLING
WATER (Water cooled version)
FAN MOTOR OUT OF OPERATION (Air
cooled version)
AMBIENT TEMPERATURE HIGHER THEN
43°C (110°F)
it causes the total and immediate SHUT-OFF
of the machine in order to prevent the unit
from operating in abnormal and dangerous
conditions.
When the ice maker stops on account of this
protective device, there is a simultaneous
glowing of the RED LED, warning the user of
the Hi Temperature situation.
The machine will remain in OFF mode for
one hour then it will restart automatically.
In case the unit trips OFF again in alarm for
3 times in 3 hours, the machine SHUTS OFF
DEFINITIVELY.
After having eliminated the source of the
excessive condenser temperature, to restart
the ice machine it is necessary to unplug and
plug in again.
The refrigerant suction or Lo-pressure sets - in
normal ambient conditions - on the value of
0.5 bar (7 psig) on SPN125 and of 2.4÷2.6 bar
(34÷36 psig) on SPN 255, SPN405-605 and
SPN 1205 after few minutes from the unit start-up.
This value can vary of 0.1 or 0.2 bar (1.5÷3 psig)
in relation to the water temperture varia-tions
influencing the freezer cylinder.
NOTE. If, after ten minutes from the unit start
up, no ice is made and the evaporating
temperature detected by the evaporator
sensor results to be higher than -1°C (30°F)
the ice maker stops and the 5th WARNING
YELLOW LED blinks.
The machine will remain in OFF mode for
one hour then it will restart automatically.
In case the unit trips OFF again in alarm for
3 times in 3 hours, the machine SHUTS OFF
DEFINITIVELY.

MECHANICAL SYSTEM
RE-SET push button or switch OFF and ON
the power line main disconnnect switch
(Fig. 7).
The mechanical system of the SIMAG Flaker
machines consists basically of a gear motor
assembly (two on model SPN1205) which drives,
through a ratched coupling, a worn shaft or auger
placed on its vertical axis within the freezing
cylinder (two on model SPN 1205).
The gear motor is made of a single phase electric
motor with a permanent capacitor. This motor is
directly fitted in the gear case through which it
drives - in counter clockwise rotation at a speed
of 9.5 r.p.m. - the freezer auger being linked to it
by the ratched coupling.
The machine will remain in OFF mode for
one hour then it will restart automatically.
In case the unit trips OFF again in alarm for
3 times in 3 hours, the machine SHUTS OFF
DEFINITIVELY.
The RED LED will start blinking and after 3
minutes the ice maker will resume its total
operations by running first the gear motor
and then the compressor.
NOTE. In the event the gear motor (one of
the two on SPN1205 ) will tend to rotate in the
wrong direction (counterclockwise) or not
rotating at all or rotating at lower speed the
unit will stop immediately with the glowing
of the WARNING YELLOW LED on account
of the intervention of the Electromagnetic
Safety Device - based on Hall Effect principle.
After having diagnosed and eliminated the
source of the gear motor wrong rotation, to
restart the unit it is necessary to press the
Too low ambient and water temperature (well
below the limitations of respectively 10°C and
5°C - 50°F and 40°F) or frequent interruptions of
the water supply to the freezing cylinder (clogging
of the water hose connecting the float reservoir to
the water inlet at the bottom of the freezer) may
cause the ice to get too hard and compact loosing
fluidity and thereby seizing the auger.
This situation will put under excessive strain
and load the entire drive system and freezer
bearings.

COMPONENTS DESCRIPTION
A.
EVAPORATOR TEMPERATURE
SENSOR
The evaporator sensor probe is inserted into its
tube well, which is welded on the evaporator
outlet line, it detects the temperature of the
refrigerant on the way out from the evaporator
and signals it by suppling a low voltage current
flow to the P.C. Board.
According to the current received, the microprocessor let the ice maker to continue its
operations or not. In case the evaporating temperature, after 10 minutes from the unit start-up,
does not go below -1°C (30°F) the evaporator
sensor signals to stop immediately the unit
operation, with the blinking of the 5th Warning
YELLOW LED.
NOTE. The machine will remain in OFF mode
for one hour then it will restart automatically.
In case the unit trips OFF again in alarm for
3 times in 3 hours, the machine SHUTS OFF
DEFINITIVELY.
To restart the unit after the shutoff caused by
the hi evaporating temperature, it is necessary to switch OFF and ON the power line
main disconnect Switch.
B. WATER LEVEL SENSOR
This sensor consists of two small stainless steel
rods vertically fitted on the inner face of the
reservoir cover and electrically connected to the
low voltage circuit of the P.C. Board. When the
cover of the reservoir is positioned in its place the
tips of both the rods dip into the reservoir water
transmitting a low power current throu the same.
NOTE. In the event of shortage of water in
the reservoir or, in case the water used is too
soft (de-mineralized) to cause greater
resistence to the current flow (electrical
conductivity lower than 30 µS) this sensor
system causes the shutoff of the machine,
to protect it from running without water or
with an inadequate water quality. In this
situation the YELLOW LED will glow to warn
of the machine shutoff and the reason why.
C. CONDENSER TEMPERATURE SENSOR
The condenser temperature sensor probe,
located within the condenser fins (air cooled
version) or in contact with the tube coil (water
cooled version) detects the condenser temperature variations and signals them by supplying
current, at low voltage, to the P.C. BOARD.
In case the condenser temperature sensor detects
a temperature at the condenser lower than +3°C
(37°F) that means ambient temperature too low
for the correct unit operation, the sensor signals
to the P.C. BOARD to do not start up the unit till
the ambient temperature rises to 10°C.
In the air cooled versions, in relation to the
different current transmitted, the micro processor
of the P.C. BOARD supplies, through a TRIAC,
the power at high voltage to the fan motor.
In the event the condenser temperature rises
and reaches 60°C or 70°C according to the
setting of DIP SWITCH number 8 the current
arriving to the micro processor is such to cause an
immediate and total stop of the machine operation.
NOTE. The machine will remain in OFF
mode for one hour then it will restart
automatically.
In case the unit trips OFF again in alarm for
3 times in 3 hours, the machine SHUTS OFF
DEFINITIVELY.
To restart the unit after the shutoff caused by
the hi condenser temperature, it is necessary to switch OFF and ON the power line
main disconnect Switch.
D.
ELECTROMAGNETIC SENSOR
(Two on SPN 1205 Model)
This safety device is housed on top of the Drive
Motor (one per each motor on SPN1205 model)
and detects - based on Hall Effect principle - the
rotating speed and rotating direction of the drive
Motor.
Should the rotating speed drop below 1300 r.p.m.
the magnitude measured by this device is such
to signal to the microprocessor to stop the unit
and light-up the YELLOW LED. The same
reaction occures when the drive motor will tend
to rotate in the wrong direction (counterclockwise)
or when it doesn't rotate at all.
NOTE. The machine will remain in OFF
mode for one hour then it will restart automatically. In case the unit trips OFF again in
alarm for 3 times in 3 hours, the machine
SHUTS OFF DEFINITIVELY. To restart the
unit after the shutoff caused by this safety
device, it is necessary first to eliminate the
cause that has generated the intervention of
the device and then switch OFF and ON the
power line main disconnect switch.
E.
OPTICAL ICE LEVEL CONTROL
(Two on SPN 1205 Model)
The electronic optical ice level control, located
into the ice chute (one in each of the two ice
chutes on SPN 1205 model), has the function to
stop the operation of the ice machine when the
light beam between the light source and the
receiver gets interrupted by the flake ice which
accumulates in the chute.
When the light beam is interrupted the Bin Full
YELLOW LED located in the front of the P.C.
BOARD blinks; in case the light beam gets
interrupted for as longer as 6 seconds, the ice
machine stops with the glowing-up of the 2nd
YELLOW LED to monitor the full ice bin situation.
The 6 seconds of delay prevents that any
minimum interruption of the light beam due to the
regular ice chuting through the ice chute may
stop the operation of the unit.
As soon as the ice is scooped out (with the
resumption of the light beam between the two
Page 27
infrared sensor of ice level control - YELLOW LED
blinks fast) 6 seconds later the ice machine resumes
its operation with the simul-taneous extinguishing
the 2nd YELLOW LED.

P.C. BOARD (Data processor)
The P.C. BOARD, fitted in its plastic box located
in the front of the unit, consists of two separated
printed circuits one at high and the other at low
voltage and protected by fuses. Also it consists of
five aligned LEDS monitoring the operation of the
machine of three jumpers (TEST used only in the
factory, 60/70°C used to set up the PC Board at
proper safety cut out condensing temperature and
3' to by pass the 3 minutes Stand By) and of input
terminals for the leads of the sensor probes as
well as input and output terminals for the leads of
the ice maker electrical wires.
The P.C. BOARD is the brain of the system and
it elaborates, through its micro processor, the
signals received from the sensors in order to
control the operation of the different electrical
components of the ice maker (compressor, gear
motor, etc.).
The five LEDS, placed in a row in the front of the
P.C. BOARD, monitor the following situations:

J3 - SYEN
J2 - Pro. El. Ind.
· 3'/60':
Used to set up the start up delai time:
• Jump IN = 3'
• Jump OUT = 60'
H.
INTERFACE P.C. BOARD
(Only on SPN 1205 Model)
Used only on SPN1205 model, it allows to elaborate
the signal received from both the electromagnetic
sensors as well as from both the optical ice level
controls transmitting it to the P.C. Board for the
control of the unit operation.
The Interface P.C. Board is equipped by four
INLET sockets (two for the electromagnetic
sensors and two for the optical ice level controls)
and two OUTLET plugs to be connected to the
sockets of the main P.C. Board.
I.
FLOAT RESERVOIR
The float reservoir consist of a plastic water pan
on which is fitted a float valve with its setting
screw. The float valve modulate the incoming
water flow to maintain a constant water level in
the reservoir, level that corresponds to the one in
the freezing cylinder to ensure proper ice
formation and fluidity.
On the inner side of the reservoir cover are fitted
the two water level sensor pins which detects the
presence or the shortage of water in the reservoir.
NOTE. It is very important to make sure of the
correct fitting of the cover on the reservoir in
order to enable the sensor to efficiently control
the water situation avoiding undue shutoff
interventions.
J.
FREEZING CYLINDER or EVAPORATOR
(Two on SPN 1205 Model)
The freezing cylinder is made of a stainless steel
vertical tube on which exterior is wrapped around
the cooling coil with the evaporating chamber
and in its interior is located the auger which
rotates on its vertical axis and it is maintained
aligned by the top and bottom bearings. A water
seal system is located in the bottom part of the
freezer while at the top end is fitted the ice
breaker.
The water constantly flowing into the cylinder
bottom part, freezes into ice when in contact with
the cylinder inner walls. The ice is then lifted up
by the rotating auger and compacted and forced
out by the ice breaker.
K.
ICE BREAKER (Two on SPN 1205 Model)
The ice breaker is fitted in the freezer upper part
it has, on SPN125-255 Model, two breaker teeth to
break the ice and with its slanted shape from the
rear tooth to the front one it compacts and forces
the ice out in an horizontal way.
On the other models the ice breaker is made by
several rectangular openings where the ice is
forced to pass through.
By undergoing this, the ice looses its excess of
water content so it drops into the bin in hard dry
bits of ice.
In the ice breaker it is housed the top bearing
which is made of two rolls bearings positioned to
withstand the auger axial and radial loads. This
bearing is lubricated with a food grade - water
resistant grease.
NOTE. It is advisable to check the conditions
of both the lubricant grease and the top
bearing every six months.
L.
GEAR MOTOR
(Two on SPN 1205 Model)
The gear motor is made of a single phase electric
motor with permanent capacitor directly fitted on
a gear box.
The drive motor rotor is kept aligned on its
vertical axis by two ball bearings permanently
lubricated. The gear case contains a train of
three spur gears with the first one in fiber to limit
the noise level. All the three gears are encased
in case roller bearings and are covered by
lubricant grease (MOBILPLEX IP 44).
Two seal rings, one fitted on the rotor shaft and
the other on the output shaft keep the gear case
sealed.
The interior can be inspected and serviced by
unbolting the two halves of the aluminium gear
case housing.
Page 29
M.
FAN MOTOR (Air cooled version)
The fan motor is controlled through the TRIAC of
the P.C. BOARD by the condenser temperature
sensor. Normally it operates to draw cooling air
through the condenser fins.
In cold ambient situation, the fan motor can run
at intermittance as the condenser pressure must
be kept between two corresponding head
pressure values.
N.
WATER REGULATING VALVE
(Water cooled version)
This valve controls the head pressure in the
refrigerant system by regulating the flow of water
going to the condenser.
As pressure increases, the water regulating
valve opens to increase the flow of cooling
water.
O.
COMPRESSOR
The hermetic compressor is the heart of the
refrigerant system and it is used to circulate and
retrieve the refrigerant throughout the entire
system.
It compresses the low pressure refrigerant vapor
causing its temperature to rise and become high
pressure hot vapor which is then released through
the discharge valve.

GENERAL
The periods and the procedures for maintenance
and cleaning are given as guides and are not to
be construed as absolute or invariable.
Cleaning, especially, will vary depending upon
local water and ambient conditions and the ice
volume produced; and, each icemaker must be
maintened individually, in accordance with its
particular location requirements.
B.
ICEMAKER
The following maintenance should be scheduled
at least two times per year on these icemakers.
1.
Check and clean the water line strainer.
2. Remove the cover from the float reservoir care to do not damage the two water sensors and depress the float to make sure that a full
stream of water enters into the reservoir.
If not gently remove the float valve from its
reservoir bracket than clean the hole of the
nozzle.
3. Check that the icemaker is levelled in side
to side and in front to rear directions.
4. Check that the water level in the water
reservoir is below the overflow but high enough
that it does not run out of the spout opening.
5. Clean the water system, water reservoir
and the interior of freezing cylinder using a solution
of SIMAG Ice Machine Cleaner.
Refer to procedure C cleaning instructions and
after cleaning will indicate frequency and procedure to be followed in local areas.
NOTE. Cleaning requirements vary according
to the local water conditions and individual
user operation.
6. If required, polish the two sensor rods
secured to the float reservoir cover, heavy scale
sediment on them can be removed with the help
of a bit of SIMAG Cleaner plain.
7. With the ice machine and fan motor OFF on
air cooled models, clean condenser using vacuum
cleaner, whisk broom or non metallic brush taking
care to do not damage the condenser/ambient
temperature sensor.
8. Check for water leaks and tighten drain line
connections. Pour water down bin drain line to be
sure that drain line is open and clear.
9. Check the ice level control sensor to test
shut-off. Close the bottom of the ice chute and
wait till it is completely full of ice so to cut off the
light beam for at least 6 seconds.
This should cause the immediate blinking of the
Bin Full YELLOW LED located in the front of P.C.
Board and, 6 seconds later, the total stopping of
the ice maker with the simultaneous light up of
the same LED (steady).
NOTE. Test the operation of the Ice Level
Control using ice NOT HAND.
Within few seconds from the removal of the ice
between the sensor lights the ice maker resume
its operation.
NOTE. The ice level control uses devices
that sense light, therefore they must be kept
clean enough so they can “see”.
Every three months remove the optical system
then clean/wipe the sensing “eyes” with a
clean soft cloth.
10. Check for refrigerant leaks and for proper
frost line, which should frost as far as approx. 20
cm (8") from the compressor.
When doubtful about refrigerant charge, install
refrigerant gauges on corresponding service
valves and check for correct refrigerant pressures.
(See Operating pressure at page 23 of this
manual).
11. Check that fan blades move freely and are
not touching any surfaces.
12. Remove the retaining ring and the hook and
cap from the top of the freezer assembly then
inspect the top bearing, wipe clean of all grease
and apply a coating of food grade water proof
grease.
NOTE. It is recommended to use only food
grade and waterproof grease to lubricate the
freezer top bearing.
13. Check the quality of ice. Ice flakes should
be wet when formed, but will cure rapidily to
normal hardness in the bin.
NOTE. It is not abnormal for some water to
emerge from the ice spout with the flaker ice.
C.
CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS OF WATER
SYSTEM
1. Switch OFF the Master disconnect switch
on the power line.
2. Remove all ice stored in the bin to prevent
it from getting contaminated with the cleaning
solution.
3. Shut close the water shutoff valve on water
line.
Page 42
4. Remove the top panels to gain access to
the water reservoir.
5. Remove the float reservoir cover and with a
piece of copper wire short the two metal pins of
the water level sensor.
6. Place a water pan under the freezer water
inlet port, disconnect the water hose from this
port and allow the water from the freezer to flow
into the pan.
Then refit the water hose to the freezer water
inlet port.
7. Prepare the cleaning solution by diluting in
a plastic container two or three liters of warm
water (45°-50°C) with a 0,2-0,3 liters of
SIMAG Ice Machine Cleaner (on SPN 1205
double the quantities).
WARNING. The SIMAG Ice Machine
Cleaner contains Phosphoric and
Hydroxyacetic acids. These compounds
are corrosive and may cause burns if
swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting.
Give large amounts of water or milk. Call
Physician immediately. In case of external
contact flush with water. KEEP OUT OF
THE REACH OF CHILDREN
NOTE. The ice made with the cleaning
solution is slushy and coloured also, it may
tend to loose fluidity creating some resistence
in being elevated and extruded; this situation
can be heard by the noise made of the ice.
Should this occure it is recommended to stop
for few minutes the ice machine in order to
allow the ice in the freezer to partially melt
then restart again.
11. When all the cleaning solution has been
used up, open the water shutoff valve to allow
new fresh water to flow into the reservoir. Let the
unit to continue to run until the ice resumes the
normal colour and hardness.
12. Stop the icemaker and pour warm water on
the ice deposited into the storage bin to melt it up.
NOTE. DO NOT use ice produced with the
cleaning solution. Be sure none remains in
the bin.
13. Pour into the water reservoir 1 cc. (approx
20 drops) of SIMAG Sanitiser (Antialgae P/N
264000.00) then switch the unit ON.
14. Left the unit running for approx 10 minutes
then remove the copper wire used to jump the
two sensors for the water level and place back
correctly the cover on the float reservoir.
8. Pour the cleaning solution into the water
reservoir.
NOTE. DO NOT use ice produced with the
sanitising solution.
9. After 15 minutes switch ON the Master
switch to start the unit.
15. With a sponge moisted with a sanitising
solution, wipe clean all the bin interior surfaces.
10. Wait till the machine starts to discharge ice,
then continue to slowly pour the cleaning solution
into the water reservoir taking care to maintain
the level just below the overflow.
REMEMBER. To prevent the accumulation
of undesirable bacteria it is necessary to
sanitise the interior of the storage bin with an
anti-algae disinfectant solution every week.

NOTE. THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURE CAN BE
USED FOR EITHER SANITIZING OR DE-SCALING
THE ICE MACHINE.
NEVER MIX THE SANITIZING SOLUTION WITH THE
DE -SCALING SOLUTION.
IN CASE THE MACHINE NEEDS TO BE SANITISED
AND
DE-SCALED,
CLEAN
THE
MACHINE
THOROUGHLY, THEN FIRST DE-SCALE, AND AFTER
PROPER WASHING AND RINSING, DO THE
SANITATION.
WARNING. When using any chemical, protection of
hands and eyes should be worn.
NOTE. De-scaling is recommended every 6 months in
average water hardness conditions, while sanitizing
should take place once a month. Under extreme water
hardness conditions we recommend to de-scale every
two – three months, and to sanitize every two weeks.
Sanitizing regularly will reduce bacteria growth, which is
natural in all water circulation systems as ice machines.
NOTE. Always follow approved Sanitizer / De-scaler
manufacturers instructions when preparing the Sanitizer
/De Scaler solutions.
